AGA warns of “rapid growth” in illegal gambling machines
| By Daniel O'Boyle
The American Gaming Association has warned players of the risks posed by unlicensed gaming machines, after what it described as a “rapid growth” in their prevalence.
AGA vice President of Government Relations and Gaming Policy Counsel Jessica Feil said the report was in response to a rapid growth in the amount of unregulated gaming machines that had been operating.
“Unfortunately, there’s been a rapid increase of unregulated gaming machines that exist in the shadows, taking advantage of loopholes and flouting the law, with little to no oversight,” she said.
